BAM Circus: The Festival of Wonders at the Park

from 24 to 26.05.24

3rd edition

Returning to the meadows of the BAM Library of Trees, BAMCircus offers three days of contemporary circus and street theater festival.

The third edition explores the relationship between MICRO and MACRO: a contrast not only physical, emphasized by the outsized dimensions of the performances, but also metaphorical, aimed at investigating the synergy between the individual and the community in connection with Nature.

Families, adults, and children: get ready to be transported on a dreamlike journey that ignites creativity and emotions, offering all participants a unique, extraordinary experience. 60 events, 15 international companies, and over 40 artists, parades, games, workshops, picnics, and much more wonder to experience at BAMCircus!

BAMCircus is conceived and directed by Francesca Colombo, Cultural General Director of BAM, Fondazione Riccardo Catella.

BAMCircus comes to life thanks to the support of the Ministry of Culture through the significant recognition of the FUS (Fondo Unico per lo Spettacolo 2022/24) and the Lombardy Region. The support of BAM Park Ambassadors Volvo Car Italia and Howden sustains the entire cultural program and park activities.

BAMCircus also relies on the support of Giotto, the beloved brand of F.I.L.A. – Fabbrica Italiana Lapis ed Affini, and San Carlo with Veggy Good, as well as technical partners ATM, GR Group, and Mediamond.

The collaboration of Alessandro Serena and the Content Partner Open Circus, one of the main reference points for the promotion of popular entertainment in our country, is crucial. Additionally, partnerships with notable local entities such as Quattrox4|Fuori Asse, which promotes contemporary circus as a new performance language, and the Milano Clown Festival are fundamental.
